That’s what I said to myself when my husband left town recently for a guys weekend and my daughter had a friend over to keep her entertained so I could WORK. I had huge plans to get so much SableSol stuff done; it was going to feel soooo good to get the 1,000 things checked off the to-do list. You know, the list we all have that is never-ending. Uh-huh.
How many of you can relate?
WORK – on a beautiful, hot summer day when you should be at the beach or spending time outside with your family doing something FUN. You remember what fun is, right?
WORK – after spending the last few weeks being your kid’s personal Uber driver by schlepping them to and from school and all of their after-school activities, all of this on top of your day gig and taking care of house and home. And, by the time Friday rolls around you’re so exhausted you’re in bed at 7pm. Come on, I can’t be the only one.
Always working makes for a tired brain, an achy body and eventually a grumpy human no one wants to be around. Hey, that can’t just be me either. Remember this, there is ALWAYS stuff to do.
STOP – Sometimes doing nothing is the best thing you can do, for you and those around you. Tough for us Type As, I know, but you’re not being lazy you just need a freakin’ break! Go to the beach, take a walk in the woods, meditate, whatever your jam is, DO IT. Take care of YOU. Those closest to you will thank you for it. Trust me.
This picture? That’s me not working on the weekend my husband was out of town and remembering it’s ok to have FUN. #livelife.
